The best golf courses in Portugal

Tuesday, 03. February 2015
Penha Longa, Atlantic Course (near Lisbon) – Picture yourself hitting an approach shot toward the green and having to avoid a centuries-old aqueduct neighboring your target. That is only part of the phenomenal experience at Penha Longa. The Atlantic course sits in the middle of a large natural reserve with constant elevation changes and some of the speediest greens in Portugal.
Oitavos Dunes (near Lisbon) – Rated by Golf Magazine as one of the top 100 courses in the world, Oitavos Dunes is a perfectly natural golf course. Located on elevated land overlooking the ocean, this layout gives the golfer a rugged feel with fast greens and lush, well-groomed fairways.
 
Oceanico Courses, Victoria & Old Course (Algarve) – Designed by Arnold Palmer and the frequently the host of the European Tour's Portugal Masters, the Victoria Course is a true test of golf with rolling hills, well-positioned bunkers and extensive water hazards. The Old Course has narrow fairways and intimidating tree lines. It has a classic feel that will impress all its challengers. 
 
Monte Rei Golf Club (Algarve) – Monte Rei has a clubby, private-club ambiance even though it’s a public golf course. The clubhouse, perched atop a hill, is simply stunning. Built on rugged Portuguese terrain, this Jack Nicklaus golf course will challenge you on every shot.
 
Quinta do Logo, North and South Courses (Algarve) – Known as the Jewel in the Quinta do Logo crown, the South has hosted eight Portuguese Opens. Designed by William Mitchell, the South requires target-golf accuracy off the tee and is known to be a favorite course of many European Tour players.
 
Vale do Lobo, Royal & Ocean Courses (Algarve) – The Royal Course at Vale do Lobo has the most picturesque golf hole in Portugal, and, arguably, in all of Europe.  Number 16 overlooks the spectacular turquoise blue ocean with a clay cliff separating the golf hole and the beach. Many believe the Ocean Course has the better overall layout, but it’s hard to beat the eye candy at Number 16.
 
San Lorenzo Golf Club (Algarve) – It's important to note that in order to play San Lorenzo guests must stay at the Dona Filipa Hotel. Opened in 1988, San Lorenzo Golf Club is one of the most popular golf courses in Portugal. The course is played on undulating pine woodland with perfectly groomed Bermuda grass fairways and is located on the southeast corner of Quita do Lago bordering the estuary and the saltwater lagoons.

Retire to Portugal?

Wednesday, 28. January 2015

In several countries, including Algarve, Portugal; Pau, France; Abruzzo, Italy; and Medellin, Colombia, your U.S. dollars will stretch farther than in the U.S. thanks to current exchange rates. And in Cuenca, Ecuador, and Pedasi, Panama, the U.S. dollar is their currency, so there’s no exchange-rate risk. Here are your 10 best options in 2015:

1. Algarve, Portugal. Portugal's Algarve is home to more than 100,000 resident foreign retirees. This old world region on the Atlantic Ocean is the best place in the world to retire that nobody's talking about. Portugal's southernmost province offers the best of Europe, including medieval towns, fishing villages, open-air markets and local wine, plus some of Europe's best sandy beaches.

This is a land of cobblestoned streets and whitewashed houses with lace-patterned chimneys, surrounded everywhere by fig, olive, almond and carob trees. Thinking more practically, the Algarve also offers great weather, with 3,300 hours of sunshine per year, meaning more sunny days than almost anywhere else in Europe.

The best of Portugal

Saturday, 10. January 2015

The greatest champion of Portuguese food is its fish, since its location and the Atlantic waters make it the best fish in the world. However, there are countless reasons why Portugal is a gastronomic destination of choice.

The fish and the seafood, which are best enjoyed by the seaside under the pleasant Portuguese sun, are joined by a huge variety of good quality table wines, enhanced by a Mediterranean climate that also offers ideal conditions for olive oil.
